I would love to be your new graphic designer! 

Below I have culled some examples of my work. I tried to show you more of my modern design, but if you want to see other styles, my website is packed.  I also pulled a few writing samples. I am currently writing for We Make, and I recently finished writing and illustrating my first book. And I'm always writing emails. I love to write! 


DESIGN

 

Graphic I designed for the Community Cycling Center's bike shop. Was printed 20'' x 20'' and hung in all of the windows. Click for closer view

 

A poster I designed for the Community Cycling Center's bike shop. I liked employing modern design aesthetics when designing for the bike shop because bikes are such modern machines. Graphically they're also successful posters because they are uncluttered and can communicate directly. Click for closer view

 

I redesigned the Community Cycling Center's e-newsletter.

Left shows the original newsletter, and right shows my redesign. I cleaned it up and made it more visual, with more obvious link buttons. The redesign led to a much greater open rate. 

Admittedly it's still not a very good looking newsletter. With non-profits you have to be careful not to look too sleek, or donors worry about where you're spending their money. Click for closer view

 

Graphic I designed to entice people to sign up for LAIKA/house's new e-newsletter.  People love free stuff, or the chance to win free stuff! We got a lot of sign ups, and were then able to hook them with our awesome content. Click for closer view

 

I created these restaurant cards for LAIKA/house. They were displayed by our catered client lunches to give some information about the restaurant the food came from.

The idea with our clients was always to make them feel cool, and to feel like we were cool. We were essentially just a warehouse full of weirdos - animators, producers obsessed with animation, people who can make clay look like raw meat - so we had to be clever. Click for closer view

 

Infographic created from data gathered by Hacienda CDC's Andando en Bicicletas en Cully group about the need for bike storage in Hacienda facilities. 

The Community Cycling Center advocates that bicycling is a tool for empowerment. Barriers to bicycling that exist in low-income neighborhoods keep people who could benefit from savings and fitness associated with riding a bike as transportation from being able to do so. Andando en Bicicletas en Cully is one group working to change that, with the help of CCC. 

Being able to use design to pack meaning and advocate for change was an important part of my job there. Click for closer view.

 

Invitation designed for a party at LAIKA/house. All of our internal events were branded. This is just one of many, many invitations I designed for parties there. Click for closer view
